(Minghui.org) Mr. Zhang Xinghe is a Falun Dafa practitioner in Beixiyao Village, Daiyue District, Tai’an, Shandong Province. He has been detained for more than three months, and is facing trial. His family hired a lawyer from Beijing, and Mr. Zhang will plead not guilty.
Mr. Zhang spoke to people about Falun Gong and gave out free truth-clarification calendars on December 28, 2012. Tang Guangming reported him to the police. Deputy director of the Wenkou Town Police Station Li Jun, officer Jin Bo, and assistant officer Li Maokang arrested him. Subsequently, the director of the police station Gong Yujun, instructor Zhang Xunyi, Li Jun, and the head of the 610 Office Liu Deyun led a dozen officers, including Wang Qing, with the help of the village area director Gao Jun, to break into and ransacked Mr. Zhang’s home. They seized his computer, printer, recorder, Falun Gong books, truth-clarification materials, and 2,000 yuan in cash.
The officers also took away his electric bicycle, and incarcerated him at the Tai’an Detention Center. His wife, Ms. Feng Yuelan was arrested and taken to the town police station at the same time, but was released around 5:00 p.m. that afternoon.
Mr. Zhang, 60, is a law-abiding citizen. He is a good person at home and in his village. He used to be feeble and suffered from many long-term illnesses. He also took care of his grandmother and parents, who were also sick. After practicing Falun Gong, his physical health greatly improved, his illnesses disappeared, and he got along better with others.
Mr. Zhang told others about the benefits he got from practicing Falun Gong, as well as the persecution of practitioners. He urged people to do good deeds, and this was not any behavior that harmed others or society. Instead, these were good deeds that benefited others.
